What is the best Apache configuration for mod_python (v3.3.1)? Should
Apache be compiled with mpm-prefork or mpm-worker?

It is safest to use mpm-prefork if you are using other third party web
frameworks or components and have no idea if those packages are thread
safe. Even if you are writing your own from scratch, if you don't know
much about writing thread safe code, use mpm-prefork.

In short, the difference is that mpm-worker can result in multiple
requests being processed within the same process at the same time in
different threads. Thus your code needs to be thread safe.
